First edition of this scarce work by a pioneer in the development of the concept of emerging markets. "Sir John Rolleston was the head of the Investment Registry, one of the largest investment houses of the day, and produced this work to promote his advisory service. Recommending a series of high yielding government, railway, and municipal bonds, he advertised that he could produce a six and a half per cent yield, with an annual small capital gain. Investments in Great Britain were the least satisfactory, while Central and South America offered he greatest overall gain" (Dennistoun).
